La Compagnie Du Renard Masqué

The members of the Compagnie Du Renard Masqué (Company of the Masked Fox), a historical fencing association from Lyon, France, asked me to highlight their talents of duellists. They practice the art of swashbuckling and theatrical reenactment, with true weapons and Renaissance or grand siècle era costumes, tailor made on patterns and fashions of these ancient times.

We had the great opportunity to work in two settings: the Museum of Miniature and Cinema of Lyon, on one of the sets of the film Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, and at the Palais de la Bourse, a building inaugurated in 1860, by Emperor Napoléon III and Empress Eugénie.

The two sessions, made on a same subject but in two different places gave me the opportunity to apply two distinct treatments: the first, very graphic and inspired of the comic strip; the second more turned towards a cinematographic approach.
